MONDAY, FEBRUARY 26th

Lovely sunny spring day. All kit packed for the line, so writing under difficulties. Capital news from the South.


Footnote

Lieutenant Colonel Blacker’s ‘good news’ was German withdrawal from the Ancre. Unknown at the time was the siting, extent, depth and length of the Hindenburg Line, all of which meant a stronger position than those vacated, and held with fewer troops.
